HOW DOES SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL LEARNING PLAY IN A PIVOTAL ROLE IN MAKING OUR WORLD A SAFER PLACE?
Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement™ is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a mission to ensure that every child has access to Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in their classrooms and to help facilitate this teaching within their families, schools and communities. We do this in honor of Jesse and to spread the message he left on his family’s kitchen chalkboard shortly before he died – “Nurturing, Healing Love.”
Founder, Scarlett Lewis has personally dedicated her life’s work to sharing Jesse’s message to make a positive impact on our world and by supporting the efforts of increasing the awareness and benefits of SEL by “Choosing Love.”
